The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
An updated cadaver package that fixes a vulnerability in neon
exploitable by a malicious DAV server is now available.
cadaver is a command-line WebDAV client that uses inbuilt code from
neon, an HTTP and WebDAV client library.
Versions of the neon client library up to and including 0.24.4 have
been found to contain a number of format string bugs. An attacker
could create a malicious WebDAV server in such a way as to allow
arbitrary code execution on the client should a user connect to it
using cadaver. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0179 to this issue.
Users of cadaver are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a patch correcting this issue.
